Yes, I've bought from them many times
I saw this and it encapsulates how I feel when I defend BBM Soundwave's alt mode.
The altmode is so good! Tbh I’ve seen a lot of love for it, so you’re not alone!
Thanks, going to have to start a support group lol
Here you go.
@Jtprime17 — any idea if this means the Hot Rod variant was replaced with a reissue?:
Sad if true
Entertainment earth is probably using a place holder image, like they did with legacy Galvatron.
The Hot Rod variant has a different UPC than the first release. As to what the difference is between this one and the original I don’t know, since I haven’t seen the product shots.
If I had to take a guess for most disappointing outcome. The variant might not be anything special besides an updated box to meet Hasbro’s new standards of packaging including less plastic.
Same product, same accesories, same details but the box is new after all.
Part of me hopes it is just a new box because if it is pink like others have speculated I may be tempted to pick him up despite already having him.
Any chance this Hot Rod variant was moved to SS Selects or whatever's the line the NEST Bumblebee belongs to?
Isn’t NEST Bee just regular SS?
I think currently it's a regular SS release that doesn't belong to any wave and upon announcement promotional material suggested it was supposed to be a Selects release, but my memory might be failing me.
It was just the Entertainment Earth-created pic using the Hasbro promo pics they were given that slapped the Selects logo on, none of the actual pics or other material from Hasbro implied Selects at all

Why does the new box say Hot Rodo?
Thats Hot Rod’s brother, Hot Rodo.
Hot Rod's fake identity used to avoid the law after his numerous crimes were uncovered, including but not limited to: Identity theft, Tax Fraud, Murder, Underaged drinking, and Loitering
Cool. Saves me $30.
Don't forget general nuisance and an involuntary botslaughter from 1986.
